Maya Banks Lands ‘Multi-Million Dollar’ Book Deal

Erotica romance author Maya Banks has inked a “multi-million dollar deal” with Berkley Books for a new trilogy.

Trident Media Group executive vice president Kimberly Whalen negotiated the deal with Berkley executive editor Cindy Hwang. Here’s more from the release:

Berkley will publish simultaneous digital and trade paperback editions of each book. Brilliance Audio has acquired audio rights in a six-figure deal … The new trilogy will be set in Houston, Texas amidst a world Banks originally created for the Sweet Series. Focusing on the lives and friendships of a closely intertwined group of people, the series will explore the friends’ tragedies and triumphs as well as their darkest fears and secrets.

Last September, Banks inked a 7-figure deal for her Breathless trilogy. According to the release, she has sold nearly one million copies of that series.
